11/28/17 2:31 p.m. In what has become a common occurrence this holiday season, a homeowner reported that a driver with a car full of Amazon packages dropped something off at a neighbor's house and then stood around for a while before leaving. (Editor's note: We asked the LOPD about this; here's what's going on: Amazon is hiring seasonal workers — and paying them $18-$25 an hour — for its Amazon Flex delivery service, but the use of the drivers' own vehicles is causing concern in some neighborhoods where package theft has been an issue in the past. LOPD Officer Karinya Moison says she has even stopped a car containing a driver who was delivering for Amazon. Moison says the drivers leave packages; they don't take them. "But they look kind of confused," she says, "while they are driving or walking up and down the street trying to find an address." As always, the LOPD urges any concerned resident to call the department at 503-635-0238. But now you know...)
